... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

Working comfortably in summer heat

Many existing office and administrative buildings are not air conditioned. This makes it all the more difficult to concentrate on work with increasing temperatures. Scientists have therefore analysed which measures can be used to improve user satisfaction. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Keeping a cool head in the summer heat" (04/2016) presents investigations and models to assess the thermal comfort.  more...

Improving pumps for geothermal energy requirements

Geothermal power plants and heating networks use natural water resources from deep water and rock strata. In terms of the efficiency of the plants, the drilling costs and the premature wear and replacement of the feed pumps have previously made a considerable impact on the balance sheet. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Developing robust pumps for geothermal energy" (03/2016) presents modified submersible centrifugal pumps that are specifically adapted to the requirements of deep geothermal energy. The prototypes for the new pumps are already able to withstand the mineral deposits from the thermal water for longer and provide greater energy efficiency than the previous units.  more...

Modelling renewable electricity supplies

The German federal government wants at least 80 per cent of the electricity production to be generated by renewables by 2050. Scientists at the Öko-Institut are therefore investigating how the growing proportion of renewable energies can be optimally integrated into the energy system using storage systems combined with grid and load management. The newly published BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Modelling power supply for 2050” (02/2016) presents possible basic structures for generating and distributing electricity for the years 2020, 2030 and 2050.  more...

Successfully implementing plus energy on housing estates

The future belongs to buildings that will produce more energy than they consume over the course of the year. This concept is known as energy-plus construction. A newly-built housing estate in Landshut, Bavaria, has been erected in accordance with this standard and then accompanied by scientific studies. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Energy-plus concept tested on housing estate” (01/2016) presents the first results of the monitoring, the survey of residents and operational optimisation of the building technology.  more...
